If you were part of the government in 1914, what would you be worried about the people of Britain doing?
At the outbreak of war, in August 1914, the government passed the Defence Against the Realm Act (DORA). This act placed a number of restrictions on civilians living in Britain.
It is your task to analyse the impact that DORA had on sections of society.
Using the cards, you should consider why you think the government introduced each regulation.
Discuss these with your table!
‘What impact did DORA have on the people who lived in Britain?’
Now you have discussed these, you should analyse what impact they would have had on the different aspects of the war effort.
Write an explanation under the correct heading on the table provided. You should explain how each restriction would help Britain win the war!
Extension: You should create your own headings for your table – you need to work out the different ways the regulations helped the war effort!
What do you think each of these different people would have thought about DORA?
